Sauteed Pork Chops with Pineapple and Mint are not only hearty and delicious, but easy to make--making it a perfect go-to dish for weeknight dinner! Fresh pineapple is more flavorful, but if it isn't available in your grocery store, you can use canned.
4 6-oz. boneless pork chops, trimmed, pounded to 3/4-inch thickness
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks, diced
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
How to Make It
Sprinkle chops on both sides with salt. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops and sear on 1 side until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, turn chops and continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of chops reads 140ºF to 145ºF, 4 to 6 minutes longer. Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
Add pineapple and 2 Tbsp. water to skillet. Cook, stirring to incorporate browned bits on bottom of skillet, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in mint and red pepper. Spoon over chops and serve.

I cooked the pork chops the way I want (olive oil, salt, pepper, butter, a couple cloves of garlic) but used the pineapple sauté recipe from here and my husband and I loved it. I served it on rice with an ear of corn as a side. Next time I make this I will use slightly less crushed red pepper because it was really spicy but still delicious. The sauté mixes well onto the white rice. Thanks for the recipe!
Also it was very easy to make!
